A San Francisco charter school damaged by a five-alarm fire on Dec. 22 is asking the community for help as officials scramble to recover in time for the start of the new school term.

The annex building at the Creative Arts Charter School was one of four buildings damaged by a five-alarm fire that started in the alley between 1502 Golden Gate Ave. and 1015 Pierce St. shortly before noon.

The damage to the building included the loss of six classrooms as well as the library, cafeteria, community meeting space, art studio, counselor's office and main office, school director Paul Greenwood said. In addition, teachers lost their curriculum and teaching materials and supplies and the school lost computers, sports equipment and art and office supplies.

The American Red Cross provided assistance to displaced residents, and The Alamo Square Neighborhood Association is collecting donations for fire relief. For more information go to http://alamosq.wordpress.com/.
